. yesterday talk show host rush limbaugh compared the president, speaker of the house nancy pelosi, the proposed health care reform, and the president's health care logo to nazism and/or hitler. and despite criticism from among others the conservative national review online, the antidefamation league, the american jewish congress, and rabbi marvin heier founder of the simon wisen thal center, he retrenched with the health care thing today. >> his health care logo looks damn like the nazi logo. i'm sorry but it does. i didn't create either logo but i have two eyes and i can see. infuriating democrats, good. is obama not got a website where he is asking supporters to provide the names of people providing disinformation about the health care system? what did i say yesterday that is not true? >> you know, there are people alive today who barely survived the holocaust. and there are many people alive today whose whole families were killed in the holocaust. nazism is not a metaphor for a political policy you disagree with. used dlib lirt eliberately to characterize an opponent it has a r

rush limbaugh, god and the facts, how do you see the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, non-politically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and like showmanship up against us where they twist our words and we can hardly combat that? >> let me say first of all that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan. then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of '80 and i serveed with him for eight year necessary congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue we had a harder time because we didn't have rush limbaugh or fox news or hannity or the internet. there was actually probably greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if you took all e-mail addresses in this room, collectively you probably represent 60 or 100 or 200,000 people. you would be startled how many people

, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
and the rest of it. i think the leadership is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congres
chosen political calculation over courage. it's not surprising people like rush limbaugh -- what is surprising is that few in the senate who are conservative are willing to stand up for truth instead of the fringe. >> speaking of lies -- the government involvement is unconstitutional. do you agree? >> i haven't heard the quote. i would not say it's unconstitutional. >> so, she's wrong? >> if that's all there is to quote, i don't agree. if you're talking about who's misleading -- the president is tauging about a deficit -- >> how is he misrepresenting his previous stances, given the current system, he believes that the public option is the way to go and to protect the private health insurance market. what have you heard? >> in 2003, he said i for one believe in a single payer health care system. >> and said that he was starting the system from scratch. >> i don't believe he said that. also, he has said as many liberals have said, that this would lead to a single payer health care system. if people are confused, the president needs to go back and address this. >> sam, you get the l
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie
the president retake center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is insane. what he's saying is insane. the first thing is it has been conventional wisdom among the smartest people in washington, this is a tough issue that needs to be done on a bipartisan basis. the obama administration decided not to. leaders of both parties could have gone out to the meetings. they didn't do that. they chose more or less a democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. it's not just the crazy, among who we just saw some. if you take overall ratings for health care, the american public is as skeptical as they were when clinton care collapsed. so, it's not just the crazies. there is a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disarovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are peop
just tells a lot of whoppers now. believe me, rush limbaugh and sarah palin are saying some things extremely off the charts untrue of the plan but i wrote down some of the things balma said which was a whopper. he said everybody could keep their plan. six million are going to lose their plan. preventive medicine will cost $90 million. government would be out the health care decisions. he tells one thing after another making it seem so easy. believe me, this is not easy. it's going to take some sacrifices and some really painful cuts for people to get this system under control, and often, when i look at him, i think he's over-promising, not as much as the other side but to a significant degree. >> certainly not as much as other other side because the other side, i think, has gone beyond the pale. the fear is not just about this plan. there's a fear of robbing the land. i mean, between 2000 and 2009, the private sector basically didn't create any jobs in this country. there's a fear, if you live in ohio, you can't see your grandchildren unless you drive a car or bus somewhere because
, not specifically ma lishs a that was taken by the rush limbaughs of the world to be an attack on anti-conservative or anybody who opposed high levels of immigration or opposed abortion. of course, that wasn't all was the report said. nevertheless it was sort of red meat for the far right. >> mark, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you for having hee. >>> ahead is secretary of state hillary clinton continues her trip in africa she is highlighting a crisis plaguing the democratic of congo. we have that straight ahead with hbo filmmaker lisa jackson. butt room for the internet. with my new netbook from at&t. with its built-in 3g network, it's fast and small, so it goes places other laptops can't. i'm bill kurt, and wherever i go, i've got plenty of room for the internet. and the nation's fastest 3g network. gun it, mick.

and pests need to be kept away, and i mean no disrespect to rush limbaugh or sarah palin. it is up to us to make this president do what he promised us he would do. he is not just going to get in there and do it. we have got to force his hand to give us the things he promised on this beach. there are a lot of people around him that do politics the old way, back when i did not know what a laptop was, because of the cut of their suit or how much money they have, they think that equals power, and it does not. power is with the people, and the people in this room. we elected a lot of congress people. we elected a lot of centaurs. hello mr. franken from minnesota. it is up to us to keep the pressure on. i cannot name the number of chiefs of staff that call my office and say this is a tough vote for us. we are in a marginal seat and we have to make sure we do not get too crazy. it is going to be a tough election. no shit. we were there when you got elected the first time. remember that e-mail's and the labor unions and young people? we will be there again, but you have to perform. you will have

side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo
that the republican tactics are going to backfire. when people hear rush limbaugh comparing the president of the united states to adolf hitler, the democratic party to the nazi party, when they see these kind of tactics going on, i think that's only in the end going to build support for what the president wants to do. >> house minority leader john boehner says the democrats are quote in denial instead of acknowledging the widespread. if we're dismissing these and if democrats are dismissing these questions about health care reform and how much it's going to cost that it could backfire on them? >> no one's dismissing the questions. everybody's willing to answer the questions. the senate finance committee's working very hard on this. the senate health and education committee has already done this. but you can't get any progress on this, at least if you're on the other side, by just standing there and screaming or by trying to flood these meetings and making it impossible to hold them. when you do this, all you're doing is i think assembling a whole bunch of joe the plumbers, the media's goi
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
on republicans, limbaugh. go ahead. caller: my senator, he did call the house and invited me in on a town hall meeting. he must know i'm a democrat. he was only calling on people for their comments. i was thinking about it while i was on the phone. he's saying all this stuff happening. like the other caller earlier said, there's really not a bill. i felt like he was giving out misunderstood to all of us. it is good that he called but i didn't get to comment. i didn't like the fact that he was giving his opinions rather than listening to any questions. host: how many questions did he take in caller: it went about 45 minutes. he just talked to us rather than listening to what we had to say. host: some people had comments. they were telling him about situations they were going through. thanks for calling in. >> people are either eligible for medicaid another 800-0000 are many that have healthcare. you are really looking at about 8 million people. that's a question you can have. you know right there they aren't telling you the truth. jo they don't cover the issue at these hearings. i paid 22 of t
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro
of the challenges that the republican party has is that republican leaders like sarah palin, like rush limbaugh, are stealing all the headlines. they're the only ones articulating any sort of a coo co-herein message. i think it's the wrong people and one that the american people are rejecting and one democrats would be happy to go against, but until the new leadership finds a new coherent message they'll keep being in the spotlight. >> trent, do you agree she doesn't have a coherent message yet? what does she need to do? >> well, i think what she needs to do is go back and decide what she wants to do. i don't think any of us know. i don't know if she knows, honestly. but as i said earlier, she's got the grounds far foundation because she has a following and does have a voice and has legitimate interest. i disagree with mo. if you look at the messaging from a national stance, four to six weeks, they're pulling even. i don't disagree there are some lightning rods on conservative talk radio but i think the republican party is finding its voice. >> mo, a lot of people -- well, a lot of her speech,
has been showcased in a book touted by rush limbaugh himself entitled great american conservative women. it is fitting that her work should be included in such a collection of literature as this text given that she is an unyielding supporter of young women
